With the recent update from the U.S. Mint, Silver and Gold Eagle sales surged in August. While Gold Eagle sales continue even higher during August, the real explosion took place in the Silver Eagle figures. After the U.S. Mint adapted its fabrication processes to incorporate protections for employees due to the virus, production and sales of Silver and Gold Eagles took off again in August.
And, when I say that Silver Eagle sales EXPLODED in August, I wasn’t exaggerating. In June, the U.S. Mint sold a bit more than one million Silver Eagles, but this more than quadrupled in August. Total Silver Eagle sales in August were 4,477,000, higher than the total sales from August to December 2019 at 3,591,500.
